no surprise, i have tremendous conflicted feelings about the teacher america. but my main concern today not just about this and i don't just mean about today, i mean, right now, what is going on in the country, is we see the pervasiveness of not only the teacher of america but a number of other organizations that are frankly araid around the privatization strategy and around the anti-untonight strategy, and i, so i... and so i understand, and this is the problem. i mean, we were pretty clear that when we were seeking, which i as you know and i am totally behind and whatever i can do. i want to do. are changing our work related to private funders and helping them to support the work. but we were really clear that what we wanted them to do and the deals that we were going to make with funders was to support the work we want to do. in line with our philosophies. and yet, we see a lot that we have private funders and i don't know that these are among them but the private fundsers who say, we are going to give you this money but spend it on what we want to you to. not what we want to. and so

know, but what we do now. it's a question of american resolve, and america's place in the world. >> our concern with the cause of the defenseless people of syria, is about choices that will directly affect our role in the world and our interests in the world. it is also profoundly about who we are. we are the united states of america. we are the country that has tried not always successfully, but always tried to honor a set of universal values around which we have organized our lives and our aspirations. this crime against conscious, this crime against humanity, this crime against the most fundamental principles of international community, against the norm of the international community, this matters to us. >> and a little while after that, president obama spoke at the white house ahead of a meeting with balkan leaders -- pardon me, baltic leaders. he said there's no open-ended commitments being discussed. there's no american boots on the ground in syria. he did not make a decision but he did express that he wished the international community had already acted and lamented the fact that
that the united states of america makes our own decisions on our own time lines based on our values and our interests. now, we know that after a decade of conflict the american people are tired of war. believe me, i am a too. but fatigue does not absolve us of our responsibility. just longing for peace does not necessarily bring it about. history would judge us all extroardinar illy harshly if we turn a blind eye to use of wepons of massa destruction against all common understanding of decen decenty. we know we have a president that will do what he said he will do. whatever decision he makes in syria it will bear no resemblance to iraq, iran or libya. it will not involve boots on the ground and will not be open ended and it will not assume responsibility for civil war that is already well under way. the president has been clear, any actiony he might decide to take will be limited and tailored response to ensure ay despot's brutal and flagrant use of chemical weapon system is held accountable and ultimately we are committed, we remain committed and believe it's the primary objective is to ha

to america's calculus vis-a-vis syria right now? >> i mean, let me be blunt. if the united states decides to strike against syria, this would be an american operation. america would take ownership of this particular operation. american operation without a u.n. security council resolution, a u.s. operation without the final report by the u.n. inspectors, a u.s. operation without a broadly based coalition. france said it would join the united states. turkey and saudi arabia and qatar. but they have been the spearhead of the fight against the assad regime. thus, the united states would be joining the anti-assad regime. the reality is regardless of how you -- we try to really explain the american operation, few in the region -- and i'm talking about the middle east and the muslim world -- would see this operation as an american operation. regardless of how important the u.s. evidence is, and it's very powerful evidence against the assad regime, the consequences, i think, would be very pivotal, both for the region and i think for america's interests in that part of the world. >> professor, yes

public support here, just as in america, i saw a report revealing that reuters is saying there's only 9% public support in the united states for intervention. there's no great grounds for the support here saying we should go into syria. memories long lasting and people recall what happened in iraq. the fear here was this would begin a slippery slope into more in depth military action. certainly the opposition, who put the amount to all this certainly is getting an awful lot of bad press from downing street and the foreign office this morning. >> what could it possibly mean in the region, what would be implications be if the u.s. goes it alone, initiates its own strike in syria? >> i think that the way the britain and america acted together, ile have similar implications for the region, you will have a destabilizing effect, military intervention in another middle eastern country, using w.m.d. as a pretext. that will clearly have implications. it will upset the delicate relationship between the united states and russia, where the president is heading in the next couple of days and certain
will proceed on that basis. >> that this hurt britains relationship with america. >> one thing george w. bush used to say about tony blare is once tony blare gave his word we are followed through with it. quite clearly, president obama and david cameron have had a number of talks and from a white house perspective, cameron will be proven to be not able to deliver. >> the specials relationship was forged in the second word war. there have been ups and downs. some got on bet than others, but it has endured through the decades. although it's a friendship the british, the junior partners always probably cared about more than the americans. >> the british parliament has who you mill 80ed david cameron, but there are ministers in his government will worry that it has somehow diminished britain's place in the world and helped make it a less important international player. >> i spoke to one of the conservative rebels, an m.p. who voted against british military involvement in syria. >> britain is still an economic power, but our state is relative to other countries around the world sadly diminishing a
and the government. now viva la france. that i are standing by america's side. the u.k. and that shocking vote in parliament not coming along with the united states this time. tur ski also an -- turkey is also an allie. it doesn't appear that they will be voting on this prior to any attack. the president said they will get a classified briefing soon. >> mike, thank you. >>> >> fear of a possible u.s. attack on syria has people in wilinlebanon worried. there's a growing sense on the streets that an attack could be hours away. we have more from beirut. >> reporter: there's two different kinds of responses over what has taken place in syria. a number of refugees come over the border or in to lebanon here. people who have come with families who tried to leave people here and turn right around and go back because they fully expect to fight whatever force comes at them as they are members of the syrian regime. the other thing that has happened is this on the street in lebanon itself, you are beginning to get a heightened tension now that things feel more imminent. there had long been a thought that
to conversational piece when it comes to music -- berkeley, juilliard, it is the largest music school in america. the beauty of it is there is nothing going on in indiana. i am so grateful for that time. i was a freshman and did not realize it. reed hall is so close to the music. i did not realize these future great artists were living in my dorms. artists were in those dorms because they can walk across the street to the music school. the fact i waste around so many artists. i should have stuck with lessons. that you do not have in common with me. you stuck with it and got good at it. greatve got some collaborations on this project. >> there is entrÉe botticelli, .he great mark knopfler i have been fortunate enough, when i look back on my career, the one decision i made that aided me more than most is in 1982 when i moved to new york city for the first time, it was the first explosion of wynton marsalis. i really thought he set up a glass ceiling that all the people that play in the same style, i thought they would never be able to penetrate that ceiling because winton has it covered. i am his
to the credibility and the future interests of the united states of america and our allies. it matters because a lot of other countries whose policies challenge these international norms are watching. they are watching. they want to see whether the united states and our friends mean what we say. it is directly related to our credibility and whether countries still believe the united states, when it says something. they are watching to see if syria can get away with it because then maybe they, too, can put the world at greater risk. and make no mistake, in an increasingly complex world of sectarian and religious extremist violence what, we choose to do or not do matters in real ways to our own security. some cite the risk of doing things, but we need to ask what is the risk of doing nothing? it matters because if we choose to live in a world where a thug and a murder er like bashar assd can gas thousands of his own people with impunity, even after the united states and our allies said no and then the world does nothing about it, there will be no end to the tested of our resolve and the dangers that w
, and the schools, no account teachers, and let's bring in teach for america clubs, open up charter schools in the district, and that's the model, the idea that's been propagated for the last decade plus under republican administration and a democratic administration. it is just the latest in a series of silver bullets overredded up, and you can just change the structure and everything else changes, but i think what union city teaches is -- or reminds us that -- is that there are a handful of time-tested, well-proven, well-established game changing strategies the school district can be done, and i'll say a word about that in a minute. why write about it? people forgot or took it for granted. it is almost like platitude, and any incompetenter with -- educator with a pulse will nod their head and say, sure. the trick is actually going from saying, yeah, that's a great idea to making it happen. in union city, you start with amazing preschool systems, and i know you are here someplace or another. where are you, suzie?

>> questions about america's leadership on syria, we stand alone. questions, too, about the president's leadership on the economy, a record number of people will not be going to work today. good morning, everyone, all right, as we head toward the long holiday weekend, the president stands alone on syria. as of now, foreign governments do not support military action and a growing number in congress demand a demand and a vote. the president leaves for europe and russia next tuesday, on the timing of a strike and on foreign policy, he boxed himself in. also, this friday morning, a snapshot of the workplace is emerging, it's not pretty. 90 million people are not working and a large majority of teens did not work this summer. the markets very nervous this friday morning, and "varney & company" about to begin.

. it turns out the british are not coming, but france may be back in. america is ready to go it alone either way. we're talking of course about the intended -- apparently intended attack on syria. white house officials saying off the record it could come at any time, most likely after saturday when the final u.n. inspectors leave that country. but the president not getting the coalition he sought. overnight the british parliament turned down prime minister david cameron's request to back the u.s. in that effort. >>anna: you see the cover of the daily news, the british aren't coming, the british aren't coming, saying the president is looking more like the lone ranger than paul revere. parliament coming out a vote not to go a 0 long with the -- not to go along with the unilateral attack against bashar assad. what do you think, brian? >>brian: you've got to get a bigger coalition; they were on president bush. you need more partners. the coalition always included tony blair and the british. david cameron doesn't have the votes and saying i'm not going to go further. this is embarrassing after ne
can't burn it in america, put it on a train, ship it over to china or india. so, we got market forces. and against that we have to marshal intelligence and collaboration and political response, because this stuff is serious. and the fact that people aren't worried about it and don't talk about it doesn't mean it isn't serious. and that's the insidious character of this -- of this challenge, that some people know about it, 90, 97% of the scientists who deal in climate science all agree that when it comes to doing something it takes leadership. and not just political leadership, but business leadership, church leadership, academic leadership. and that's the context, i believe, in which you have come together. you're focusing on solar energy. that's a big piece. there's plenty of sun out there to take care of our energy. it's going to take time. it's going to take technology. it's going to take scientific breakthroughs, research, and development. and it's going to take storage. and it's going to take various insebastianvv stifle. just in california you have some cities that charge 1800 b

is if the world community, not just britain but america, and others, stand back and do nothing because i think assad will draw very clear conclusions from that. >> brown: france endorsed that sentiment, and the defense minister signaled his nation's military is poised to act. >> ( translated ): the armed forces are in a position to respond to the requests and the decisions of the president once he reaches that point. >> brown: the french and british leaders had already spoken by phone with president obama. today, german chancellor angela merkel discussed the situation with the president. she also talked with russian leader vladimir putin, who's warned against attacking syria before the u.n. inspectors make their report. and, back in damascus, president assad sounded a new note of defiance, saying, "syria will defend itself in the face of any aggression." >> just minutes ago the british house of commons rejected using force against syria. prime minister cameron will not try to override the parliament. we turn now to an experienced weapons inspector who's also investigated and written about what
